One of the Singaporean women involved in the horrific crash in Melbourne over the weekend is on life support.
Miss Gwyneth Lok, 20, a project executive with events company Chupa, suffered critical head injuries and has been in a coma since the accident on Saturday night.
Doctors at Alfred Hospital in Victoria, Melbourne, have told the family to be prepared for the worst, a reader familiar with the incident told The New Paper yesterday. TNP understands that Miss Lok underwent surgery to drain a build-up of fluid in her brain, and the damage to her head is critical.
Several of her family members, including her parents and 13-year-old brother, have flown to Melbourne to be with her.
Miss Lok, who recently graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a diploma in early childhood education, was one of the five Singaporeans involved in the accident.
The four women and one man were in a blue Renault at about 8.15pm (5.15pm Singapore time) on Saturday when the accident happened in Windermere, more than 100km from Melbourne.
The driver, Nasuha Nasser, 21, a psychology and media and communications student at the University of Melbourne, was charged on Sunday by the Victoria Police's Major Collision Investigation Unit with dangerous driving causing serious injury and negligently causing serious injury.
